Impact Ministries is a non-profit organization that has been actively spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ through resources, ministry, and teaching since 2001. Impact’s Discipleship Center launched in 2013 as a result of Dr. Tootle’s ardent investigation of scripture and determination to serve God with every good and perfect gift received from Him. Impact’s education and professional services are in the business of equipping the saints for the work of the ministry with effective solutions and revolutionary resources, empowering congregations with strategies and tools to successfully meet today’s challenges.
Dr. Tootle has been friends with his wife, Penny Tootle since middle school. The two married in 1987 and have raised their two sons in Las Vegas, Nevada, acclimating them to the work of the ministry at an early age. Along with his daughter-in-law and two granddaughters, Dr. Tootle is intent on developing a legacy of impactful ministry that begins at home.
